Manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining solutions, Victaulic, has unveiled a plan to build an additional 400,000 sq. ft. manufacturing centre in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania due to increased domestic demand for the company’s products.
The facility is expected to break ground later this year and be fully operational in 2019.
“This new facility will play an important role in meeting increased customer demand, while also producing the highest quality products in the industry — something our customers have come to expect from us since our first innovation nearly 100 years ago,” said John F. Malloy, CEO of Victaulic in a company release.
The new facility will include millions of dollars in new equipment to modernize its manufacturing operations. Robotic and optical technology will advance the limits of quality control for the company’s castings and finished products through automated assembly operations.
